Bitter Cold and Blustery Winds Expected for Thanksgiving

A widespread 3-to-4-inches of snow will have fallen across northern Massachusetts and the Route 2 Corridor as an area of low pressure pulls away from the region.

Mainly, a rain event east of the I-95 corridor is expected for the rest of the region, perhaps ending as a brief period of snow late Tuesday afternoon or early this evening.

Temperatures are not expected to climb much Tuesday, with highs in the 30s across most of the region. The exception will be along the immediate east coastal shoreline of Massachusetts, southeast Massachusetts and southern Rhode Island, where highs mainly in the 40s are expected.

High pressure begins to build towards the region for Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day. Both days will see mostly sunny skies. However, it will be cold Wednesday with highs in the mid-30s to lower 40s.

Thanksgiving Day will be bitterly cold with blustery winds. High temperatures will range from the mid-teens over the northwest interior, to the mid-20s for Cape Cod and the Islands.

Wind chills will be in the single digits during the day, and some exposed higher terrain locales will see wind chills below zero. An area of high pressure settles over New England Friday, bringing sunny skies and temperatures in the 30s.

Looking ahead to the weekend, a warming trend develops over the Northeast with a coastal storm ushering unsettled weather into the start of next week on the exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-Day Forecast on NBC10 and necn.
